Edinburgh BioQuarter addition to bolster tissue research
The University of Edinburgh, Balfour Beatty and Stantec have broken ground on a £50m Centre for Tissue Regeneration and Repair within the city’s BioQuarter.

Laboratory space for 350 biologists will be dedicated to research efforts into cellular regeneration within the body, aiming to stop, slow or reverse tissue damage.

BioQuarter director Hans Moller said: “Our vision for Edinburgh BioQuarter is to have a network of paths and cycle routes which will bring better connections between researchers, clinicians, healthcare staff, commercial companies, patients and visitors.

“There are plans for a hotel, cafes and a gym which will offer a welcoming space where people can meet.

As part of the work a new pedestrian link will be routed through the campus, connecting planned and established facilities such as the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic and a sub-atomic research centre.

It will be interesting to see how a Centre for Tissue Regeneration and Repair weathers over the years.
